Removing the Cat

I have a 2008 Brutale 910s, i was looking to remove the cat. Both so the bike will run a bit cooler, but to also gain power and it will look better.

Being an 08, i believe removing it is a bit harder. I picked up a non cat mid pipe and realize i have to cut the headers at the cat. But what chip/computer upgrade do i need to do this?

Id like to improve the streetability of the bike at the same time as the throttle can be "snatchy" especially at low rpms...

hit me up with your thoughts. I have considered the microtec unit but the cost is really high, and i dont know of anyone local who can tune it.

I live in tampa Florida

decat?

Onager;

the easy route is an set of early head pipes and the mid pipe.....cutting the pipe doesn't work, the bend is wrong and too short..... ask me how i know

from the F4 section;
i have a '08 910R.....box stock it was the WORST fueled bike under 2,500 RPM i have EVER ridden
yes, i have the VDST tool and i used it
i have a Uni-Syn and have been using it for over 50 years
i have a Twin-Max electronic differential pressure gauge and it works

the MV race ECU was worse the idle was all over the place up and down ~500RPM??

bolted the MicroTec ECU on.....OK, the idle is too high, but
fans come on at 187F-86C hasn't seen 200F-93C since
its a little lean on hard decel.....but i don't mind a little crackling, just like on my Aprilia

take Lee's word for it "MicroTec, the best money spent on my bike!" (Tambo) and he tried everything

This might help,http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showth...?t=40220:bash:
cheers eddy
ps: check first for the 910
should be the same as the 1078

your choices are.1 microtec
2 race ecu with pc3 or pc5 if made for your model and a dyno tune.you must adjust your idle before doing a dyno tune.

you have no other options.

Thumbs up MicroTec?

ONAGER;
Eddypro explained it sort of
MicroTec is plug and play, better fuel and ignition maps, fans come on at 86C-187F my bike WILL not go over 89C-192F......OK $1200 round number

race ECU list ~$1,700 CAG gets $500
PClll or V ~$325
add dyno time $$????
add it up

and your fans will still come on too late

PS; i run my coolant level at MAX cold and the bitch doesn't pee a drop

decatted, aftermarket air filter, early 6 piece head pipes

i have a Race ECU for a 910R PM me

1078 race ecu paid 360 dollars
pc5 paid 300 dollars
dyno tune 280 dollars
throttle body sync 35 dollars
total 1035 dollars
temp while running is 80 deg
temp while stopped is 93 deg
fans kick in at approx 90 deg
idle is now at approx 1250 rpm with fans on and 1350 with fans off
fuel economy brilliant
no snatchy throttle at all. nil.
microtec i would say would be around 1300 dollars ,still a good buy and i will probably buy one in the next 3 months just to compare the two

This battle has been fought many times, there is 2 options, this above and Microtec, you will have about 75% of the guys on here saying Microtec, and then there is guys like me and Eddypro who did the race ecu/PC V set up and are chillin like a villain. Eddy's prices are correct. Evolution Bikes has the best price on MV Race ECUs and has them for every model.

Yes microtec can be plug and play but guys on here have posted results of still getting more out of it with a tune and that is still more $. Your choice. Either way, it ain't cheap. Either way, the bike will be better. Good luck.

Here is the explanation of how it was to mount my mid-pipe and collector.

I am running the original ECU today, and it works fine.
But I would like to have a Microtec ECU.

As already said a Microtec seems to be the only cure, well it was for my 1090, removing the CAT won't make any difference to the snatch.
